Bachelor`s degree programme, 3 years

Shipping Management

Norway has been a major player in the shipping industry for 150 years, in that period we have developed a considerable expertise in the maritime area. The numerous and varied maritime activities that have grown up around traditional shipping and fishery has given us a leading position in the international offshore market. Nearly 90,000 people are working in areas connected to the maritime sector.

Shipping is one of the few truly international markets. Shipping companies are demanding customers but also international door openers, and due to this, shore based maritime industry has been given the opportunity to develop. Through a close interaction between the shipping companies, research institutions, producers of equipment, shipyards, shipbrokers, insurance agencies, classification and offshore/oil related activities, we have managed to build effective and competitive environments in several areas.

Møre og Romsdal is today one of the world’s foremost maritime clusters with offshore shipping companies, shipyards and equipment producers. NTNU in Ålesund has close cooperation with maritime industry and is a central actor in the maritime cluster and is also a part of Centre of Expertise Maritime.
